Details / Info

The first compilation to document the unique culture of salegy, soukous and soul on the island during the ‘70s and ‘80s.
‘Alefa Madagascar' showcases the rich variety of sounds during this heyday of Malagasy music: Roger Georges' ‘Mama' and Jean Kely et Basth's ‘Andosy Mora' bring the raw energy of salegy, influential band Los Matadores drop military drums and Hammond soul in the classic ‘Andeha Hanarato'; Mahaleo's ‘Izahay Mpamita' showcases the band's powerful folk sound, a crucial voice emerging from the Rotaka farmer and student protests of 1972, while Terak'Anosy Group work around a stomping Congolese guitar groove. The era paved the way for many of the household names of Malagasy music today including Jaojoby, D'Gary and Lego. Compiled by Réunionese DJs La Basse Tropicale and Percy Yip Tong (Mauritius).
